Very helpful, if I ever decide to switch to OmniPod. I was just thinking about it recently, as my special Italian pump (from the pulsatile cortisol protocol) is pretty bulky. Thanks for posting!

Very cool! Didnt think you could use the omnipod with cortisol. I use Omnipod for my diabetes and take cortisone for my Addisons.
